RS: I don't get it, what about the Goblins? What can you tell us about their mount?

Blizz: They don't have a mount exactly; they have /piggyback.

Now you see, that would be an astounding idea.

Nice one Wilson, that border between satire and reality gets ever thinner. :)

Mountain Dew == Cancer killer? Where can I get this stuff in the UK?

I'm becoming addicted to this feature

At first I was thinking this was kinda dumb but your little articles are growing on me. Especially like the part about the really ultra super special starcraft 2 controller.

Why haven't I noticed this before now?

Further reasons for Warcraft Addictions, - Cancer beating energy drinks

You have to admit that some people are addicted to games on a dangerous level.

gehehehehe

These would make GREAT april fools jokes.

That was very funny, but why does it mention Fallout 3 in the title if it isn't in the article?

The article was classy as always ;)

Oh man. Back in the 'good 'ole days' of reliable source, there use to be boobs. At least there were chicks making out. Man... I remember back when (wikipedia quote here). Yeah... things used to be different.

I'm sorry, even if the Dew can cure cancer, I can't stand by it. Not only does it nauseate me to the point where I want to yell at my mom on while on teamspeak about how the phone is for her, but its also just... not Dr Pepper.

RS: I don't get it, what about the Goblins? What can you tell us about their mount?

Blizz: They don't have a mount exactly; they have /piggyback.

I predict a HUGE upswing in the market for those old riding crops.

I predict you should have saved this story for April 1, where it would better fit.

Excellent as Always, Seth. Although the prospect of grandpa's being able to teabag and shout 'fag!' is one that I fear will now show up in all of those atrociously humorous nightmares. Ugh...your average macho shooter is one thing, deep inside his power armor, but Grandpa is a totally different fear altogether.

... :O ...

Wow... This was an interesting read... Mountain Dew cures cancer, Blizzard calls themselves an 'aging relic' and is a money-grubber, Fable 3 will have two well known actresses making out and being addicted to gaming is a good thing.

Well, Blizzard being a money-grubber is pretty duh, but at least they deliver. For the rest, WOW.

Am I the only one who failed to find anything about Fallout3 in there? :3

Also, lol at the idea of Wolves riding Boars

I don't think I've ever been less impressed with an article on the Escapist. Maybe I just don't "get it", but this sounds like the kind of uninsightful witlessness that you'd find in Maxim. It doesn't even read like Onion-style parody, just someone with a chip on their shoulder.

Don't like games/gamers/game developers/game communities (as is clear from the tone of the article)? Write for something else. It's a big internet.

I just noticed that the phrase "Fallout 3" gets my attention just as much as the word "sex" does.

Imagine how hyped youd be about an Adult game set in the Fallout 3 Universe... called say.... Fallout 3 The Secret Sex Bunker.

Its like a dream come true.

I think it was supposed to be Fable 3 instead of Fallout 3. That game is never mentioned in any of the five articles. Trust me. I can read.

/piggyback would be such an awesome feature for goblin travel. Of course it would come with an automatic /roll feature to see who gets on top and in control. Carrotonastick anyone?
Imagine the incense a worgen would feel, seeing an orc on a wolfmount. Riding wolves is cruel to the wolves. Save a wolf, kill an orc. Don't get me started on Tauren riding wolves...ouch.

Jerry's personal tales of blowing out NES carts and funny anecdotes about how long it took him to download pornography on his 300 baud modem seemed to be a hit with the students. Things were going well until a student asked him how old he was and why he was quoting Wikipedia articles verbatim.

Sounds like Scott "I'm a Hardcore Elite Old-School Core-Demographic Gamer Because I Played Zelda and Punchout" Ramsoomair.

Razorback0z:
Fallout 3 The Secret Sex Bunker.

I think I may have to go lie down now

Lets face it cancer needs to become more extreme to kill off today's youth it needs to be rad and hip and fly you know all those words kids use these days.

....... I can't tell if you're being serious or not. You do realise that comic is a parody of nerd rage....right? Especially given the last panel.

I'm not really seeing the satire. Mostly because of previous work like this.

But, anyway, shrug.

The last bit about addiction and other disease was genius

great as always, i especially liked the part about Scarlett Johansson and Zooey Deschanel making out, its always nice to read an article that leaves a feeling whit you

You might have also noticed the bit where it tricks you to read it without mentioning Fallout 3. Satire, dear boy. ;)

What is this about Fallout 3? It's not in the arti...ow...

GODDAMIT! People, I think we've been had....

This was a great set of 'articles'. I loved the whole grandpa calling me a fag and teabagging me, almost fell out of my chair.

Although now that I think about it, the Natal would probably put Nintendo and Sony out of business if they really did have a game where you control Scarlett and Zooey making out.

*Takes Notes*

You fail at satire reading.
